2004 Crossfire turns heads at King

King Auto Center officials last week rolled out the new, 2004 Chrysler Crossfire, a two-seat, touring sports car designed to compete against imported sportsters.

The impact was immediate, as people stopped in to check out the sleek sedan. The Crossfire features a 240-watt, six-speaker stereo system, 3.2-liter V6 engine, and 18-inch rims.

It is available now for test drives at King Auto Center near Kukui Grove Center. Coming soon will be the 2004 Chrysler Pacifica, a new van model.
